About SREM Mentoring

Welcome to the Section on Racial and Ethnic Minorities (SREM) of the American Sociological Association (ASA) Mentoring Blog. We are glad you are here.

This blog will serve three primary purposes

1) Information: An online hub for information for SREM members related to professional success.

2) Questions: You will be able to ask questions on this blog and a volunteer will answer them. 

3) Safe Space: SREM will host a safe space where you can discuss issues with fellow sociologists who also research and teach in your area.

This blog is a work in progress, and thus the first step will be for us to post links to useful information. Once we have completed that, we will invite questions. Finally, we will host a discussion forum.

Here are the mentoring needs the ad-hoc committee on mentoring has identified:
